Nature's nation : American art and environment by Karl Kusserow( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nature's Nation: American Art and Environment offers a compelling new vision of American art, examining for the first time how artists have both reflected and shaped environmental understanding while contributing to the development of modern ecological thought. Reframing more than three centuries of diverse artistic practice in North America, this timely volume traces evolving ideas about the environment - and our place in it - from colonial encounters between Indigenous beliefs and European natural theology through nineteenth-century notions of progress and Manifest Destiny to the emergence of contemporary ecological ethics. Far-reaching and multidisciplinary in its interpretive approach, Nature's Nation looks at works of art across genres and media - including painting, sculpture, prints, drawings, photography, decorative arts, and video - revealing important new discoveries about creative encounters with environmental history and politics through materials, techniques, subjects, and ideas, With essays and commentary by both scholars and artists, the book offers the first broad ecocritical review of American art and features work by more than one hundred artists, from Charles Willson Peale, Thomas Cole, and Winslow Homer to Georgia O'Keeffe, Jacob Lawrence, and Jaune Quick-to-See Smith"--Book jacket flap
Mark Dion : misadventures of a 21st-century naturalist by Ruth Erickson( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive survey of American artist Mark Dion, examining three decades of his critically engaged practice interrogating our relationship with nature The first book in two decades to consider the entire oeuvre of Mark Dion (b. 1961), this volume examines thirty years of the American artist's pioneering inquiries into how we collect, interpret, and display nature. Part of a generation of artists expanding institutional critique in the 1990s, Dion adopted the methods of the archaeologist or the natural history museum, juxtaposing natural objects, taxidermy, books, and more to reorganize the natural and the manmade in poetic, witty ways. These sculptures, installations, and interventions offer novel approaches to questioning institutional power, which he sees as connected to the control and representation of nature. Generously illustrated, this publication introduces new insights and features more than seventy-five artworks

Concrete jungle( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the late 19th century, Eugene Scheifflin, prosperous New York drug manufacturer, amateur ornithologist and Shakespeare enthusiast, had a plan: to inventory, import and naturalize every bird mentioned by the Bard. Unfortunately for North American farmers and indigenous birds, Henry IV, Part 1 contains a reference to the starling. In 1890, Scheifflin released 40 pairs of European starlings into Central Park. A year later, the birds had already colonized Staten Island. It took the starlings just 55 years to establish themselves from coast to coast and north to Alaska, decimating many native species, including the bluebird. Concrete Jungle examines this story and myriad other examples of the unpredictable mutations and side-effects that have taken place as urban environments and Nature meet and sometimes collide

Natural wonders : the sublime in contemporary art : thirteen artists explore nature's limits( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Accompanying an exhibition of the same name, 'Natural Wonders' showcases the work of thirteen celebrated American artists who offer multimedia representations of the natural world and the impact of human intervention, revealing fresh and evolving guises of sublimity for the twenty-first century. 'Natural Wonders' spotlights works by Maya Lin, Roxy Pain, Diana Thater, Dustin Yellin, and others, that probe the porous border between the natural and artificial realms -- between the wild and cultivated. This timely and relevant exhibitino at the Brandywine River Museum of Art in Chadds Ford, PA, highlights nature's splendor while at the same time hinting at its more disquieting facets. Through an engaging mix of installations, video, dioramas, photography, and sculpture, the works create an experience of the neo-sublime, mixing the beautiful and the unsettling to produce awe in the beholder. Ultimately this assemblage encourages us to be more attentive to our natural surroundings, in both their benign and baneful aspects. These enticing works also address pressing issues such as habitat loss, environmental toxins, bioengineering, and increasing alienation from nature, offering both diagnosis and prescription for our cultural condition. The books introductory essays provides a broad cultural and historical context for the contemporary work, complemented by statements from the exhibited artists and a reflective dialogue between environmentally minded artists Mark Dion and Alexis Rockman."

Lost paradise : Mark Dion, Stefan Panhans, Andreas Schulze, Marta Volkova and Slava Shevelenko, David Zink Yi by Zdenek Felix( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in German and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Frage, inwieweit wir mit unserer animalischen Natur verbunden sind und was unser Dasein von dem der Tiere trennt, übt bis heute eine anhaltende Faszination aus. Auch Insekten und andere, dem Menschen unähnliche Tiere bilden ein reichhaltiges Reservoir für metaphorische Vergleiche zum Verhalten von Individuen oder ganzen Gemeinschaften. Die Publikation Lost Paradise geht dieser Metaphorik in der Gegenwartskunst nach, lässt Urtiere bildnerisch wieder aufleben, erfindet Käfer, die sich in Geldstücke transformieren können oder verwandelt naturkundliche Archivalien in surreale Wunderkammern.00Exhibition: KAI 10 | Arthena Foundation, Düsseldorf, Germany (11.10.2014-14.02.2015)
